Have you ever wondered what a day is like at the Grand Junction Police Department, Fire Department or 911 Communications Center? When you call 911, what happens on the other end of the phone? Is investigating a crime scene really like what you see on TV? What is it like to respond to a fire or medical emergency call? If you have these questions and others, the Citizen’s Public Safety Academy is for you!
This academy will present aspects of police, fire, EMS (Emergency Medical Services) and 911 Communications not generally known to the public. It will also provide insight on how public safety employees make decisions, perform their duties and serve you - our community. Except for a couple of special dates, all of the classes will take place Thursday nights from 6-9 pm. Be sure to look at the specific schedule of classes for each session.
Contact Terri Gird at 970-549-5130 or Don Hobbs at 970-244-1407 for more information.
The application deadline for the Spring 2013 Academy is February 28.
